Bird watchers this is your retreat as over 70 species have been recorded from the front deck as they forage in the native garden daily.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic, rustic cottage with everything you need with extras. The owners have provided beautiful warm, clean and homely accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were sad we only had 2 nights here. The garden was also lovely and felt we could totally relax. Thank you Mary-Alice and Ron for your welcome and all the little thoughtful details found around the cottage.Would recommend Pelican Cottage without hesitation.
